Cricket and the first days play of the interprovincial Championship match between the NW Warriors and the Northern Knights at Bready has been abandoned.

Persistent rain left the umpires with no option and they called it off just after lunch.

A win for either side would see them pip Leinster Lightning to the title, but with just two days remaining, it will probably need tactical declarations by the teams to get a positive result.

Action at Bready will hopefully get underway at 11 o'clock tomorrow. (WED).
